The Seven Coolest Cars Driven By Tony Stark
"Are you....Tony Stank?"
A man with Tony Stark's caliber is bound to have some pretty dope cars. And dope cars he had. From R8s to Cobras to Roadsters, here are the seven coolest cars owned by Tony Stank. I mean, Tony Stark. Let's get counting!
Audi R8 Spyder- an Iron Man staple.
The superhero’s go-to vehicle for everyday use is a belter. It is the one constant that has stuck with the movie franchise over the last few years, starting with the 2007 model in the original Iron Man film. Iron Man 2 saw the arrival of the Audi R8 Spyder, a blissful soft-top version of the supercar. The latest Audi R8 appeared several times in the third film, Iron Man 3, along with several other vehicles – new and classic – but none will likely have the staying power of the R8.
Audi’s supercar is as sleek and stunning as Stark’s own Iron Man armour, a perfect fit no doubt. A powerful 4.2-litre V10 engine with 525 horsepower pushes this car from 0 to 62 miles per hour in 4.8 seconds and comes with permanent quattro four-wheel drive. German engineering at its finest.
Shelby Daytona Coupe- unusual yet expected.
No one can deny that Tony Stark has good taste; from his extravagant mansion with its ocean view to the valuable cars he drives. His refined taste combine modern technology with luxury and refinement. So it makes perfect sense that Stark would balance his collection with a Shelby Daytona Coupe.
The Coupe was based on the Cobra, and maintained a similar chassis and drivetrain. But this car was built to race, and had a significant impact on the racing industry. So much so, that it was added to the list of cars to be historically preserved.
Shelby Cobra- the metallic snake.
A lightweight, no jokes, take-no-prisoners type of minimalistic sports car designed by the Brits and powered by the Americans; it is a real achievement in both design and engineering. The front-mounted V8 engine certainly packs a punch also, going from 0-60 in 4.5 seconds. It is a shame that this vehicle doesn’t really get much attention in the film and ends up being crushed under the weight of Iron Man after a slight rocket-propulsion malfunction. By whichof course I mean: he fell on it.
Acura NSX Concept- a bit different but cool, nonetheless.
One movie that the entire world had been waiting for in 2012 was the massive blockbuster known as The Avengers. In this movie Iron, Captain America, Hawkeye, Thor, Black Widow, and Hulk all came together for the first time to kick some alien butt. Of course, Stark couldn’t go a movie without a flashy car, so he opted for an Acura NSX concept car. Looking back on this car, you can see the differences between it and the production version.
Audi A8- comfort, speed and style all at the same time.
For the reboot of Spider-Man, starring Tom Hollands as the web-slinging superhero, Tony Stark drove a new Audi A8. For the world premiere of the film, Spidey rode on top of a camouflaged A8 as it had not been unveiled yet.
Saleen S7- the Murican hypercar.
Although we only ever see it in a parked position, the Saleen S7 makes its appearance in the first Iron Man movie. It survives a close call when Tony Stark crash lands in his basement garage right next to the S7. It’s later sold by Stark (along with some of his other cars) when he discovers he is being poisoned by his own arc reactor, and will likely die.
Audi RS E-Tron GT- smart, capable and very Stark.
In the latest Avengers, Tony Stark was pictured driving up to the Avengers headquarters in a sleek concept model by Audi -- the E-Tron GT. The GT is not only luxurious enough to earn the approval of Mr. Stark, but also smart, powerful, and practical enough to win over Downey Jr. It generates 590 hp, can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in 3.5 seconds, and has a range over 248 miles.
